    I agree that shelling out the ($3k+/-?) for a Schleese may not be the best idea, for right now at least. He is going to change shape as he gets worked, builds muscle etc and what fits now might not...

    We are actually converting our side by side duplex into a single family home. We are not a horse property (yet-many years from now it's a possibility) but it made sense to convert then to sell and...

    It was actually only aired the one time originally because they did not want to profit, it was meant as a tribute not an advertisement.

    Walk away. There are plenty of other people out there who would love someone to ride their extra horse that actually take care of their animals and have some compassion. This woman is off her rocker.

    Actually it was a run of the mill off the lot truck. We have 2 other friends who also bought the same truck off the lot (different trim options) but with the same towing capacities.


    Same thing...

    Nope, just defending 1/2 ton trucks and saying that yes, there will always be people like you who think for whatever reason that a 3/4 or 1 ton is a far better tow vehicle.

    1/2 tons are generally...

    Um, no. Whatever. You OBVIOUSLY know more than I do so carry on. Saying you wouldn't tow with a 1/2 ton truck is basically saying that you think they are unsafe and I merely pointed out that my puny...

    See what I mean? So since my truck is equipped with heavy duty brakes, transmission cooler, brake box, class 4 hitch, has 381 HP and can tow 10,300 pounds, it's inappropriate to tow a 2 horse...

    Any properly equipped 4x4 1/2 ton truck with a v8 engine will be fine towing a 2 horse BP trailer. Do your research after you narrow down the truck you want and make sure it has the towing capacity...

    Your trailer is equipped with brakes for a reason. You should not be relying on your truck to stop your trailer, that's what the trailer brakes are for. I hate it when I see people say that your...

    My 5 year old rides a mini. I think he is 38 or 39 inches and is nearly 400 pounds. She only weighs 32 pounds and they are very well suited for each other. She can probably ride him another year...

    Makers include Polaris, Honda, Yamaha. They can get pricey...

    Daatje is only 10 years old, she has not been in dressage training for ten years. Just thought I'd clear that up for OP.

    FWIW- I met this pair once at a local dressage show. The OP and I went to...

    Yes, people do take in rescues they can afford. You never hear about it because they are NOT panhandling on the internet for handouts. Because they are able to do it all themselves.

    I think the lease is the best idea for you and Daatje. She is a beautiful girl and I have no doubt you will find someone who would love to have her for a dressage mount. Why not advertise her, with...
